Next generation of consoles rumoured to arrive in 2012

Some developers reportedly already working on new hardware

Posted on
EDGE is reporting that the next-generation of consoles can begin its cycle sooner than most expected.

Ubisoft Montreal is one of the studios said to be working on hardware that matches the intended specifications of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 successor. Delivery of the first iteration of genuine devkits, running custom hardware, is expected to reach studios before Christmas, and all signs point to the finalised console arriving at retail in late 2012.

Several other major developers, including certain EA studios, are also apparently in possession of this target console hardware. It is believed that AMD is providing the GPU solution.

EDGE also claims that one major Sony-owned studio has now ceased PlayStation 3 development, its entire focus having shifted to the console’s successor. The studio is also said to have been involved in the development process of the graphics technology adopted by Sony’s new hardware.

WiiU, the true next-generation console from Nintendo, is set to be fully revealed at this year's E3, following only the basic announcement last year.

To date, 55.5 million PS3s had been, with Xbox 360 sales at 57.6 million. The PlayStation 3 launched a year after the Xbox 360 and at a higher price tag.
